This pink pig is ready for adventure. He (or she) has hitched a ride in the back of an antique dump truck and is ready for a day of digging through treasures at the local landfill. What could be better?
I created this pink pig from a porcelain and stoneware blend clay, finished with stains and color washes, and fired to cone 5. He features, one tipped ear, cloven hooves, and a happy look of piggish anticipation. The dump truck in which he rides is a wonderful find. The antique truck features bright colors and beautiful graphics. The truck bed and cab are metal, but the chassis is wood. The driver may be heading to the dump, but he sports a handsome blue uniform, cap and all. The truck dates to about 1930– that’s almost 90 years!
The pink pig in a dump truck sculptures measures about 9 inches long and 7 inches tall.
